Role transition from student to professional nurse is very important. During the first three month of working, new graduate nurses have to face with various situations. Some of those situations may be appraised by them as taxing or exceeding their resources and endangering their well-being. The objective of this study was to describe stress situations and coping strategies used by new graduated nurses during the first three month of working experience. The Lazarus and Folkman stress, appraisal, and coping model was used as a framework for this study. Sixty-six new graduated nurses, who graduated from Ramathibodi School of Nursing, Thailand in 1996, volunteered to participate by describing their stress situations and rating their uses of coping strategies in the Jalowiec coping scale. Content analysis and grouping of the situations revealed 5 categories of stress which are: lack of experience, care of critically ill patients, adaptation to personnel and environment, nursing activities, and emotional-focused coping were used for coping with the stress situations. Understanding the new graduated nurses’ stress situations and their coping strategies will help coworkers and other personnels appropriately deal with the novice.
